Any body that claims to say any thing about what the makers of the movie
were trying to say, who has not read Heinlein's book "Starship Troopers"
(from which the movie was based on, baddly I might add) is, to be blunt,
missing the whole point, and is most likly wrong about one or more points.

1) The politics, at least in the book IS the point of the book.
2) The Makers of the movie didn't like Heinlein's views, so they made it,
well, almost evil.  If you have not read the book, you WILL get the wrong
idea about the concepts the R.A.H was trying to get across.
